Lukas De Clerck - Aulos

Lukas De Clerck is a Brussels-based sound artist and musi­cian. He likes to work with rec­og­niz­able, almost dai­ly, sound pro­duc­tion, cre­at­ing an acces­si­ble play­ground for the lis­ten­er to step into. He plays in sev­er­al for­ma­tions, includ­ing 2GIRLSNAMEDSERGIO and Ï Î. De Clerck explored the aulos in a solo project, Bloedneus & de Snuitkever.

The aulos is an ancient dou­ble-reed­ed dou­ble pipe instru­ment. Detached from its for­mer own­ers and their entire cul­ture, the instru­ment remains an enig­ma. In this solo per­for­mance, Bloedneus & de Snuitkever, De Clerck cre­ates a re(co)naissance of the aulos by breath­ing air into an instru­ment that had been silenced for over a millennium.
